Mak spent a lot of time creating, and to give you a glimpse into who he is you have to listen to his explanation. I promise that "thereby" is not a word I use when I talk to him! Even though you can't see as much as I wish you could, I think you grasp the complexity of it by how detailed his description is. You will also have to excuse Kayte's screaming in the background.
Also take note of his face when it actually works!
